                       Supermassive Black Hole - Muse
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
tabbed by: acoustic-fish
tuning: EADGBe (standard)


there are a lot of versions of this song already, but heres how i play it, i think its easier.

intro:
when there is a bend, bend the note a semitone higher, so it sounds like fret 15

lyrics:

ooh baby dont you know i suffer?
ooh baby can you hear me moan?
you caught me under false pretences
how long before you let me go?

oooooohh you set my soul alight
oooooohh you set my soul alight

glaciers melting in the dead of night and the superstars 
(ooooooooooooooooooooooooohh)
sucked into the supermassive
(you set my soul alight)
glaciers melting in the dead of night and the superstars
(ooooooooooooooooooooooooohh)
sucked into the into the supermassive
(you set my soul)

i thought i was a fool for no-one
oh baby i'm a fool for you
you're the queen of the superficial
and how long before you tell the truth

oooooohh you set my soul alight
oooooohh you set my soul alight

glaciers melting in the dead of night and the superstars 
(ooooooooooooooooooooooooohh)
sucked into the supermassive
(you set my soul alight)
glaciers melting in the dead of night and the superstars
(ooooooooooooooooooooooooohh)
sucked into the into the supermassive
(you set my soul)

supermassive black hole
supermassive black hole
supermassive black hole
supermassive black hole

glaciers melting in the dead of night
and the superstars sucked into the supermassive
glaciers melting in the dead of night
and the superstars sucked into the supermassive

glaciers melting in the dead of night and the superstars 
(ooooooooooooooooooooooooohh)
sucked into the supermassive
(you set my soul alight)
glaciers melting in the dead of night and the superstars
(ooooooooooooooooooooooooohh)
sucked into the into the supermassive
(you set my soul)

supermassive black hole
